Valve has already worked with Perfect World to run games like Counter-Strike and Dota 2 in China, but this expansion of their partnership means that more games will have an easier path to entering this lucrative market. The gaming company just announced Steam Chat, which is now in beta for anyone to try. Steam, meanwhile, is one of the world's largest digital distribution platforms on PC, offering over 20,000 games to people around the world.
Improvements include a simplified "favorites" list that will pin certain friends to the top, an expanded detail set for what each friend is playing and where they are in the game (for instance, sitting on the main menu or facing off in deathmatch), as well as organisational changes, such as grouping friends by the game they're now playing or the party they're in. Other parts of the client have received some visual upgrades as well, including the in-game overlay, but the main brunt of the update is focused on the chat system.
Discord has become the de facto chat tool for gamers.

Valve has built a fancy new page that describes all the new features, which can be found here.
Channels may be added to group chats in a similar manner that they are in Discord or Slack, with new persistent channels bring added for text or voice chat. It is now easy to really create a community using the service, you can send game invites from within groups, and create separate channels within those groups too. Available in beta now, the Steam Chat update acknowledges that a chat-life without animated gifs, YouTube links, and voice chat that doesn't blare out your IP address every time you speak isn't a chat-life worth living. Valve is collecting feedback via this section of its forums.
